When Dems are in charge

LGBT rainbow flagA Christian leader in Houston believes the commissioners of Harris County, Texas have let down their constituents on LGBT issues.

The Harris County Commissioners have amended their employment and harassment provisions by adding sexual orientation and gender identity as new protected characteristics. Dave Welch of the Texas Pastors Council tells OneNewsNow Commissioner Rodney Ellis (D) introduced the ordinance.

"The commissioner who sponsored these changes admitted right up front that they had no documented evidence of any such complaints or instances having actually occurred, so what we call this is a solution looking for a problem and for the LGBTQ to slip into the Harris County government policy," Welch comments.

Considering the latest election put Democrats in the majority of a formerly Republican commission, Welch hopes this situation helps voters remember that elections have consequences.

"They have wasted no time in stepping forward and pushing an agenda which frankly has nothing to do with what the voters wanted or what an actual need is," Welch laments. "It's simply a political agenda to patronize the LGBT community during Pride Month." 

The pastor suggests that as long as Democrats hold a majority in government bodies, voters should not be surprised to see such issues surface and voted into law.
